My B. boehmei finally cast off its old garments and is looking pretty sweet!
Miss Hissypants, the Ceratogyrus marshalli that trolled me last month, has actually molted.
She had not molted in so long that I began to doubt my diagnosis of pre-molt. So two days ago, I left a mealworm with a crushed head at the entrance just in case. This afternoon, there is no sign of the mealworm, so I pulled her enclosure out to peer into her burrow. Sure enough, there is a molt thoroughly embedded in the wall of her burrow. (I can only see a femur.)
So now she is enjoying a fat dubia roach for her patience.
Wow. I don't see any emboli, so he should be a big boy when he finally does mature.
I know, I thought for sure this would be his mature molt!
It's a molting party over here! 4 molts in the last 24 hours;
N. chromatus female, now 3+"
G. pulchripes, unsexed, ~2"
Also got a molt from my M. balfouri that's hinting female, and can just spy a molt in the burrow of my Chilobrachys sp. Cambodia Blue.
Still have my N. chromatus male, N. tripepii unsexed, and B. hamorii female in premolt, and those are the ones I know of!
My little G. pulchra - finally! I thought s/he had forgotten how to molt
My Thrixopelma pruriens moulted yesterday and looks to have gained a bit in size
My tiny C. ritae sling is moulting right now!
It wasn't today, and no photos, but my female C. meridionalis is leggier and skinnier. Her fangs seem to already be hardened as well so a feeding is imminent. Very shy and reclusive, so I had no idea. She was due, however, so it makes sense.
Just watched my fist full molt was so excited and nervous at the same time. It was my p muticus sling, I don't care how slow she grows. She's BEAUTIFUL
Not much to report. Several molts this week, only 2 to show.
Brachypelma hamorii 4.5in large female
Brachypelma emilia 3.25in small female
L. klugi and N. chromatus slings molted this morning. Not T's but my 2 Pystalla horrida nymphs also molted in the last couple days.
T. sp. 'Panama' and A. minatrix both moulted last night.
B. albopilosum (Nicaragua)
T. sp. 'Caribbean Diamond'
H. sp. 'Fire'
L violaceopes #1 confirmed male.
My Grammostola iheringi lass has flipped. Squeaky bum time.
Sorry about the photo quality. C. versicolor #1 and #3 as well as P. irminia.
The temperatures here are finally helping a bit, G. pulchra molted again... expecting her sack mate of doing the same but that one is a digger (dirt curtains)
My P. metallica just molted last night and I figured I'd make a little collage to show how much she's grown.
Edit: they are all just post molts except for the last picture which is right before a molt
I have had an M. balfouri and Tapinauchenius sp. Union Island moult over the last couple days.
One of my unsexed N. Chromatus slings molted. Just waiting on the other 3 now. Abdomens are so dark it has to be any day now.
